Eve Restaurant, at the elegant Mayfair Hotel, has launched brand new breakfast and brunch menus. The eatery located at 1256 W 7th Street, in Downtown Los Angeles, is part of the major remodel of the 1920’s hotel.
In addition to Eve, the Mayfair now houses a beautiful new grand lobby, a Library Bar and Fairgrounds and a hip coffee and tea lounge. It’s worth the walk through the elegant lobby with blue armchairs with gold armrests, big comfy blue and brown sofas and the stunning marble topped M Bar with a huge impressive hanging curved lighted sculpture to reach the hotel’s signature restaurant.
The newly renovated restaurant has a contemporary romantic vibe with beige circular chairs, banquettes, oblong gold rimmed mirrors and black and gold accents.
Eve’s new breakfast menu includes sweet and savory dishes. There’s plenty of classics including buttermilk pancakes, blueberry oatmeal, bagels and lox and eggs benedict. There’s also great unique dishes including red velvet pancakes with chocolate, sweet cream and maple butter; a breakfast sandwich with bacon, tomato, fried egg and greens; a standout breakfast burrito with sausage, ham, bacon and cheese which is covered with mozzarella and lightly grilled.
The brunch menu includes many of the breakfast dishes as well as smoked salmon and potato latkes, red velvet waffles and chicken, a Spanish chorizo and potato frittata, croquet Madame and a prime rib hash.
There’s also plenty of morning cocktails including Bloody Mary’s and a bottomless mimosa option.
It is widely believed that the Mayfair Hotel is referenced in Raymond Chandler novel I’ll Be Waiting for You. The hotel in the story is a place frequented by Eve Cressy and Johnny Ralls. The story is about a young detective keeping an eye on Eve, a gangster’s moll awaiting the return of her lover, Johnny, from prison. She waits at the hotel for five days without leaving. Eve was willing to risk everything, even her life, to see him again. And that’s how how Eve Restaurant got its name.
